Prospective Students for Grades Pre-K-4

Visiting Our Campus
Visit us to learn about what an intentionally student-centered, whole-child educational experience looks like in action. Families are welcome to tour campus and meet with admission staff. We encourage families to visit on multiple occasions and in various capacities - ensuring that your family gets to know Berwick fully is important to us.

What’s the application process to the Lower School?
The process to apply to Berwick’s Lower School differs dependent upon a child’s grade level of entry, though all families will create a myBerwick account to complete the online portions of the application.  Applications for admission into the 2020-2021 school year are due on January 15, 2020; children with complete applications by our initial deadline will receive a mid-February admission decision from our Admission Office.  Applicants after January 15 are considered on a rolling basis dependent upon space, though we encourage you to connect with us at any time during the school year to talk about entry for the fall of 2020. 

Once you’re ready to apply, you’ll find an admission ‘checklist’ within your myBerwick account.  This will help you track what you’ll need to submit, in addition to the progress of your child’s application.  In your checklist, you will find a mix of the following requirements:

  • Application Form
  • Tour
  • Interview
  • Teacher recommendations
  • Transcripts
  • A Day Visit
  • A Group Observation
  • Individual Observation
You’ll hear from us!
During each family’s personalized admission process, we most enjoy getting to know our prospective students and their families.  We’ll be in touch with you throughout the process to ensure you understand all of the steps and to continue to grow your understanding of Berwick Academy.  We welcome and encourage your questions – call us, email us, or stop by. We look forward to working with your family!
